Rio

This is Rio the good boy! He is currently decompressing in foster and his foster family can't say enough good things about him. "We have been fostering him for about two months and he is doing great! He is totally house trained, loves playing with the resident dog Marge and lives with three kitties. He's a rambunctious player with people and other dogs, that's for sure! He didn't bark for the first three days but now he lets us know when it's time to play! I can't say enough sweet things about Rio!"
If you would like to meet Rio, please contact NCameron@bvspca.org to set up an appointment.
